I was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM and been here all my life. I began writing when I was little with a story called "Hopalong Hotdog" (yeah...)and have been doing it ever since. Nowadays I write mostly fantasy/sci-fi, steampunk, mysteries, romantic suspense and my fave, HORROR. Oh, and as you can see by my profile picture, I also draw and paint. I live in the house I grew up in, with Zoe Pickles Lee, my Chihuahua, and a few dragons, elves, and faeries and other folks in my closet.
